to eliminate some of that. any action you can take right now? >> i'd check your withholding. if you are one of the 75% of americans who actually gets a refund each year, reducing your withholding could put more money in your pocket and actually temper the effects of the payroll tax holiday expiration. >> good to have you on tonight. thank you. >> thanks for having me. >> as we're hearing from a lot of americans worried about the fiscal cliff and its effect on their taxes on this final weekend before christmas, malls are packed across america. millions of folks, myself among them, doing a lot of last-minute shopping. nbc's michelle franzen is along 5th avenue here in midtown manhattan where the buying seems to be brisk. michelle, good evening. >> reporter: well, good evening, lester. shoppers are out tonight on this last saturday before christmas, typically one of the busiest days of the shopping season. whether shoppers are wrapping up gift buying or just getting started. but for some, that uncertainty over the fiscal economy is also affecting how much they'll spend. with just three more da
notified of the senate's action and the senate will resume legislative session. the presiding officer: the senator from delaware. mr. coons: i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: the presiding officer: the senator from iowa. mr. grassley: i ask that the calling of the quorum be suspended. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. grassley: mr. president, i'd like to speak. the presiding officer: the senator from iowa. mr. grassley: we've been hearing a lot about the so-called bush tax cuts from my colleagues on the other side of the aisle. given the rhetoric being used by some on the other side to describe this tax relief, i would like to take this time to correct the record. but first during this talk about the fiscal cliff and about the tax cuts that sunset at the end of the year, all we've been hearing since the election is about what are we going to do about taxes? that's a very significant thing as a result of the last election because i think it's a foregone conclusion there's going to be more revenue raised. but
to this horrific tragedy, but let's translate into action. and the action depends on facts. why do we have 15 times as much gun homicide as the rest of the world? what can we do about it? what can we learn from other countries that have dealt with some of these issues? why do countries like japan have these extraordinarily low rates of gun home skpooicide and gun ? if we can come up with something sensible -- and frankly, if has to be more far reaching. even the legislation proposed by dianne feinstein, though a step forward, it has 900 exceptions on the assault ban. 900 separate exceptions. how can something like that be enough, given the kind of tragedy we've just seen? >> and fareed, finally, i want to read this quote from neil mcdonald, a senior washington correspondent for cbc news off the canada. yet another national discussion about guns is under way, and it's so anti-rational, so politically cowardly, so unbearably stupid, that you have to wonder how a nation that has enlightened the world in so many other ways could wallow in this kind of discussion. does this target the united states' ima
. hagel said military action is not a viable, feasible, responsible action. president obama. for secretary of defense, chuck hagel is not a responsible option. >> that's from the emergency committee for israel, pro israeli group, of course. i want you to listen also to what senator joe lieberman, an independent and another very prominent republican senator from hagel's own party had to say about him over the weekend. >> i would have some really serious questions to ask him. not just about israel, but to me, the most significant foreign policy challenge for president obama and our country and the world in the next year or two is iran and its nuclear weapons program. chuck hagel has had some very outlying votes on that. >> i don't think he's going to get republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions, i didn't really quite frankly nomo all know all of them. >> senator lindsey graham, very prominent senator, already some of hagel's own republican party coming up against him. >> we'll see if this campaign against him is effective enough, i guess, barbara, in order for this nomination not to
with ourselves, the answer is no. >> president obama made a call to action that was received well by the towns people. they were emotional in the prayers and speeches. one man said he hopes president obama will follow through to make sure something that happened here on friday never happens again. >> peter: it is time to take the mass out of mass murder . >> gretchen: so many issues to discuss. vilen video games and mental illness and gun control and i mean. >> peter: the television and culture itself. it is hardened. >> gretchen: we don't know what the answer is if it is a conglomeration of them. there is an amazing story of many that is coming out of the one particular first grade class where every 15 child except for one little girl . how does a six year old little girl have the understanding to play dead and pretepped she was shot and dead so that the shooter will leave her alone. that's what one six year old did and their family is feeling survivor guilt but she is alive. >> brian: she walked out from the building with blood on her . she said i am alive but my friends are dead. >> peter:
is poised to take action. the white house says he will support dianne feinstein's effort to reinstate federal assault weapons ban. we're hearing from the nra this morning for the first time since the elementary school massacre. dan lothian joins us live in washington. >> gun control and gun violence really have not been on the r radar here in washington after past mass shootings. there's always a lot of talk, but there's no real development. a lot of legislation simply has not gotten to the floor. this time is different. president obama coming out right away talking about taking action, but there was a lot of pressure on the white house to give details. well, now the white house getting more specific. >> he is actively supportive of, for example, senator feinstein's stated intent to revive a piece of legislation that would reenstate the assault weapons ban. he supports and would support legislation that addresses the problem of the so-called gun show loophole. and there are other elements of gun law legislation, gun legislation, that he could support. >> those other legislation that h
, the employer would legally be well within their rights to take the appropriate action which means if you smoke too much, you're fired. >> guess that's a good answer to a clever conundrum they find themselves in. thank you so much. appreciate it. >>> coming up in ten minutes as well, the los angeles mayor is going to join me. he's going to talk about a federal crackdown on medical marijuana in california and now how all of this might square and he's also going to weigh in on his personal involvement to help fix the national debt and avoid the fiscal cliff. that's coming up in just a little bit. >>> we also can't leave seattle without taking note of another huge milestone in washington state. voters legalized same-sex marriage last month too so today here's the picture. midnight on the dot clerks handed out marriage licenses and those were the first two in line. they met on a blind date back in 1977 and they never thought that they would live to legally wed amongst all of these other people who showed up for their legal licenses in seattle. by the way, the ceremony of those elderly ladies like m
, no one plan of action, that everyone agrees, we don't want a repeat of what happened in newtown, connecticut. or milwaukee, wisconsin. or aurora, colorado. and those are just three from this past year. there are others since january, and, of course, many before that. so what? we just brace for the next one, the next time? where will that be? will it be minneapolis? new orleans, will it be your city? sure, we're angry, we're hurt, we're frustrated, but i think most of us believe what the president said at the memorial for the teachers and babies as the massacre in newtown, connecticut. >> we can't tolerate this anymore. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. we will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. no single law, no set of laws, can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society. but that can't be an excuse for inaction. surely, we can do better than this. >> so tonight, we want to do better. let's look for better. and let's start with two men who know all about guns. lou palombo,
for decades. but neither the federal epa nor the epd back in the '90s were willing to take action under the clean water act to make the city fix its plumbing. so in 1994, we started upper chattahoochee river keeper. we filed a clean water act lawsuit. in 1997, we won. and so for the past decade, the city has embarked on a program to clean up the river. now, with 1,800 miles of sewer system, three sewage plants and combined sewer overflows, it took a number of years to figure out what would be the solution. we are facing a crisis in infrastructure. bethea: a huge change came about when mayor shirley franklin became the mayor of atlanta. we're having to choose how to spend our money. i named myself "the sewer mayor," and i wear that title very proudly, because, without wastewater infrastructure and drinking water infrastructure, the economy will stop. we did a major outreach. we trained an outreach team, who went to every community meeting, to educate people on how bad the crisis was. not only did i tell people that we'd have to raise rates, i told them we'd have to tear up the city to re
a few of you were frustrate would the lack of action in washington. this is missy with her take on the men and women in congress. >> this whole fiscal cliff mess shows how incredibly out of touch you are with the way people really live in this country. you are off in la la land and everybody is saying how you are acting like a bunch of spoiled brats who are more interested in being right than in doing the right thing and actually representing the people who elected you. >> and another one that came up came from chris he sent in an opinion with which side needs to give a bit more in his negotiations. >> democrats and republicans need to come together. let's get real. president obama has already given a lot more ground than the republicans have. so, my advice to senator reid and president obama would be try to stop negotiations with republicans who, like spoiled children, have no interest in compromise. remember who won the election? >> well said. finally, alberto willy sent in this reminder that lawmakers are there to serve everybody and can be voted out if they don't. >> there a
